BENEFITING: MedShare International
The purpose of this fundraiser is to contribute to the containment of Ebola epidemic that societies are experiencing in West Africa and to stop this virus. We can contribute to this through aiding healthcare workers by being part of the mission to protect healthcare workers in those countries as they take care of patients with Ebola. The provision of protective equipment will prevent healthcare workers from contracting the disease and passing it on to others as well as help them to save the lives of those with the disease. This fundraising page will raise funds that will be given to Medshare, a nonprofit organization based in Atlanta, GA, that salvages surplus medical equipment and supplies from hospitals and medical equipment companies in the U.S. and distributes them to healthcare facilities in developing countries. They are in need of funds to ship containers with medical equipment to the countries affected by Ebola, such as Sierra Leone. They have recieved contributions of medical supplies from medical supply companies. They now need money to ship them. Please help them. In doing so you will be part of the mission to contain and stop Ebola. You will be helping those who have contracted it; the people of West Africa who are at risk of infection now; and those who put their lives on the line to help those who have contracted it, both those who work in local facilities, as well as the foreigners who have gone to help. This is a scary situation for the worl but especially for those who are confronted by this epidemic now in West Africa. So let's do our part.
